Tim P. Kegel, 63, of Finleyville died Saturday May 22,
2021 at his home.
He was born September 25,
1957 in New Eagle, a son of the late Arvin L. Kegel and Irene Glaser Kegel
Allridge of Finleyville.
Tim was owner and Supervisor of Kegel Funeral Home Inc.
in Finleyville. He was a licensed
Funeral Director since February of 1990, working 10 years for his predecessor
before purchasing the business in July 1999.
He was a life member of 45 years with the Finleyville Volunteer Fire
Department, where he served in many capacities including President and Fire
Chief. Tim was the current President of
Council for Finleyville Borough, Treasurer for both the Sons of American Legion
Post 613 and Finleyville Cemetery Company.
He also served as Chief Deputy Coroner for Washington County for over 25
years. He was a member of First
Presbyterian Church of Finleyville.
Tim will be remembered for his kindness and compassion he
showed to everyone he met, especially the families he had the pleasure to serve
at his funeral home. He was the best to
tell a story and even if you heard it 100 times you still looked forward to
hearing it again from him. If he wasn’t
around the funeral home, you could expect to find him sitting on his porch, a
bench around town or behind the wheel of the antique fire engine. Finleyville has lost a legend, a piece of the
puzzle is now gone forever but he wouldn’t want us to mourn. Have a beer or a smoke in his memory. Thank You T.K for everything, we love you and
will miss you!
